What is the relationship between love and logic in actual life? What is the relevance of spirituality for the contemporary men and women who do not have the luxury to spend hours in prayer? Can spirituality emerge from the ordinary, boring and mundane experiences of an average human being? Open-minded and visionary, the articles in this book are meant to touch the daily life of busy people who are fully involved in the struggles and success of daily life. For better clarity and convenience, these articles are divided into eight approximate and arbitrary sections:

     * Religion and Life
     * Stories that Connect
     * Poetry and Language
     * Spirituality and Service
     * Science and Religion
     * Depth of Life * Keys to Happiness
     * Suffering and Evil

Limited to 625 words, they appeared first in the `Financial Chronicle,' one of the most prestigious business and financial newspapers of India, and they attempt to provide us with both roots and wings: rooted that will give them a sense of belonging to the rich Indian heritage and wings that will take them forward based on the spiritual depth. This book, `Insights from Love and Logic: In Arrangement with Financial Chronicle' is a humble attempt to lead genuine spiritual life in our contemporary context.
